Independent Living Skills – Budgeting and money management, daily chores and room cleaning, personal hygiene, and time management are just a few of the many independent living skills residents at the Windhaven House will pick up. Our desire is that each resident is given all the recovery support tools necessary to live in the world as productive members of society.
Securing Employment – Residents at the Windhaven House must have a job, and work at least 25 hours per week. Dallas has a healthy economy, and residents generally have no problem finding a job within the first few weeks. As part of our program, each resident must pay at least 30% of her earned wages toward the cost of her stay at Windhaven House.
Educational Opportunities – Many of the young women at the house have a desire to procure a G.E.D., high school diploma, or begin taking college courses. Resources for all of these are available. Dallas County Community College has a campus close to the Windhaven House, and is an extremely reputable community college. Southern Methodist University, University of Texas at Dallas, and University of Dallas are other options for furthering education.
12 Step Women’s Meeting – Every Wednesday night a women’s step application meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous is held at Windhaven House.
